Hi all,
i have a problem with some Controls, the SkinManager and the Theme-Switsching.
If I use the SkinManager with different Themes I become a Null Reference Exeption, e.g. on DateTimeEdit or GridDateTimeColumn.

Also, if I change the style in the combobox the screen is black and only after a resize of the window the sytle is show.

If I set this line to the dateTimeEdit-Control, it works with Metro:
syncfusion:SkinStorage.VisualStyle="Metro" But this can not be the solution.

The ButtonAdv is always show in the Default-Style.

I read your documentation completly, but I can not find my mistake.
I think I'm doing somthing fundamentally wrong, but I do not know what.

Attached you will find a little very simple Test-Project and a pic with the error.

I use Visual Studio 2015 Com. ,Visual Studio 2013 Prof. and Syncfusion Essential Vol. 4 with all Service Packs.
Thanks in advance
